For anyone that is not familiar with RUSH,

The albums tell a story of the possible future of mankind.

to seek something more than life itself.

The link to Xanadu was posted earlier.

I must admit I have listened to Rush Xanadu many times.

For those interested here are the lyrics.

An album worth a listen is :

Rain Tree Crow:
This is black water:

I have had this album for many years.
Another interesting track is every colour you are.

I have that CD M.Gregg, quite enjoyable after all these years. I also liked some of Japan's songs involving David Sylvian IIRC "gentlemen take polaroids?" or something similar. He did a tour or two with Robert Fripp, I havent really searched that out.

I might plug an Australian Jazz fusion band I liked some time back. Crossfire - youtube has a film of them at the Montreux Jazz festival from the 70's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCuNKxhiQrk . I have a Michael Franks live album with Crossfire as the backing band I am looking forward to hearing again when I have my turntable up and running. Crossfire has a direct to disk recording too I have never heard, hope someone posts it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCuNKxhiQrk

I may have recommended earlier but “in two minds” by bruford and borstlap is worthy of a listen. Good sounding and arranged well. One track gives your cones a real workout. Mainly jazz oriented but defies categorisation in some respects. https://youtu.be/5xmwULde3wA

Thanks @M. Gregg for reminding me of the existence of rain tree crow aka Japan etc. now going back to listen to their back catalogue. They had a nice fat sound comparably in the 80s. The glam style may have put me off then sadly but a very talented group of youth. I see also nods to Bowie, Roxy Music and kraftwerk in some tracks. Played some Rush too - a group I should study a bit more.

Maybe old hat but still Tubular Bells evokes some emotion. https://youtu.be/KXatvzWAzLU. Interesting BBC live version.

Hi,

RUSH were a phenomenon in the biker groups in the late 70's and early 80's.
They made some great tracks and drove some guitarists to drink trying to get the harmonic overtones and trying to play their music.

It also evokes some great memories for me and some times in the past at interesting "heavy metal discos" what a strange time it was.
Well worth a listen, in the past groups of people would relax in each others company and listen to music like Rush drinking and watching the sun set. Rows of Motorcycles with chrome glinting and laughter ringing into the night. River boat shuffles and dance music.
We thought at the time it would never end, but time moves on, I'm told its called progress.

M. Gregg
